As a DXer, traveling is a fun way to see and hear what the radio dial is like in other areas. I visited the Los Angeles, CA area in 2014.  Los Angeles, hugging the west coast of the United States, has mountains surrounding it that limit FM reception beyond the metropolitan area.  Still, I managed to get local-grade reception from San Diego and Tijuana stations to the southeast on several nights during my stay.

The log below represents the first logging of every signal I received in this area. Changes (i.e. new call letters, formats, etc.) observed in these signals upon subsequent visits to this area are noted in the “Information” column, where appropriate. RDS and HD Radio screenshots shown below may be from different loggings of the same station.
